Have Gun Bike, Will Travel.

My father is a consultant who generally doesn’t travel, although his clients are scattered about the country.  However, he’s spending the next couple of months in another city helping out on a rather important project.  I stopped over at the house to wish him a good trip and helped him with a bit of packing.  What was the number one, most important item to pack?  Of course, his bike. 

Knowing that he’d be away from home, there is one item he knew he must travel with, his beloved Giant!  The Charlotte Observer as posted a story just on this:

The number of business travelers who bike is not tracked. But based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey data released last month, there was a 43 percent increase nationally from 2000 to 2008 in people who bike to work regularly, though the numbers are still small: 786,098 last year, compared with 488,497 in 2000.
